Stop the world, I want to get off

The world is getting ready for the meltdown. For years, websites have encouraged prepping, getting off the grid, stocking up on ammo and gold, while at the same time preppers and the rest were ridiculed and even condemned as crazies. Now we see that the Pentagon is trying to prepare for the ‘End of the world as we knew it,’ or ‘when the SHTF.’

All of what is happening or about to happen is the end result of what the global elite have been directing for decades from the creation of the Federal Reserve and central banking to Agenda 21/2030 (and everything in between from planning to dumbing-down of schools, from the erosion of the Constitution to the corruption of government).

One of the major aspects of Sustainable Development is to move the populace from the rural and suburban areas into the cities. One reason is to better control the people. Maybe, also to aid and abet the reduction of the population?

Pentagon video warns of unavoidable dystopian future for worlds biggest cities

“The video was used as part of an “Advanced Special Operations Combating Terrorism” course offered at JSOU earlier this year, for a lesson on “The Emerging Terrorism Threat.” JSOU is operated by U.S. Special Operations Command, the umbrella organization for America’s most elite troops. JSOU describes itself as geared toward preparing special operations forces “to shape the future strategic environment by providing specialized joint professional military education, developing SOF specific undergraduate and graduate level academic programs and by fostering special operations research.”

“Mike Davis, author of “Planet of Slums” and “Buda’s Wagon: A Brief History of the Car Bomb,” was not impressed by the video.

“This is a fantasy, the idea that there is a special military science of megacities,” he said. “It’s simply not the case. … They seem to envision large cities with slum peripheries governed by antagonistic gangs, militias, or guerrilla movements that you can somehow fight using special ops methods. In truth, that’s pretty far-fetched. … You only have to watch ‘Black Hawk Down’ and scale that up to the kind of problems you would have if you were in Karachi, for example. You can do special ops on a small-scale basis, but it’s absurd to imagine it being effective as any kind of strategy for control of a megacity.”

An article expounding on how we got on the road to dystopia.

America’s Civilizational Paralysis

“America’s “lead from behind” abdication is variously explained by financial weakness, anti-imperial politics, or simply exhaustion. But the result is not so ambiguous: to restore deterrence as it existed before 2009 could be in the short-term as hazardous and costly as the long-term consequences of appeasement are fatal.

“What would once have been seen as radical neglect of our existential problems is now the normal way of getting by one more day. What destroys civilizations are not, as popularly advertised, plagues, global warming, or hostile tribes on the horizon, as much as self-indulgence, self-delusion—and, finally, abject paralysis.”

Casey helps to clear up the waters-made-murky by those wishing to disinform an ignorant public and the rest of us.

Doug Casey on the Self-Identified Elite

“Haass starts out by dividing the world of foreign policy observers into the “internationalists” and the “isolationists”—a false, misleading, and stupid distinction. They’re not “internationalists” (which are people who move between countries); they’re “globalists” (people who want to work for one world government, that they control). He uses the term “isolationists” as a pejorative term for the enemy camp, conflating them with non-interventionists—who are a totally different group. Isolationists bring to mind a backward cult, hiding from the rest of the world. Non-interventionists simply don’t want to stick their noses in other people’s business.”

One of the characters defined above. The global elite have decided we are ready for the full monty of extremism on behalf of gaia-worshipping, brainwashed, useful idiots.

New UN Chief: Globalist, Socialist, Extremist

“Globalism-loving socialist Antonio Guterres of Portugal (shown), infamous primarily for helping to engineer the massive tsunami of Islamic immigration into the West, has been officially selected as the next secretary-general of the United Nations. His prescription for what ails the world: more socialism at the planetary level, more power for the UN, more “global governance,” and more mass migration from the Third World to Western countries. In other words, more of the same extremism that already has the world and the West on the brink.

“The agenda, though, is clear, and it has nothing to do with “protecting refugees” or “humanitarianism.” Guterres and his fellow globalist-socialist extremists are not fooling everyone. In Hungary, for example, Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blasted what he termed a “criminal conspiracy” of internationalist fanatics. In essence, he has argued in multiple speeches that these globalist conspirators, based largely in European Union HQ in Brussels, were using mass Islamic immigration as a weapon to undermine Western civilization, Christendom, and the nation-state on the road toward what globalists often refer to as their “New World Order.”

Two pieces helping to inform on China.

New Urban Agenda: Chinese Government To Move 100 Million Farmers To Cities By 2020

“China is the epitome of a functioning Technocracy and this is the New Urban Agenda, Agenda 21, 2030 Agenda all rolled into one. 100 million farmers will be forcibly driven from their land to populate numerous technates (ghost cities) that have already been built. This is the same ideology that is consuming America. ⁃ TN Editor

To facilitate the mass relocation, large and midsize cities have been told to drop the need to own a home to qualify for a hukou, which is needed to access public services, the State Council said.”

Economist Book Review: China’s Crony Capitalism

“China has never had a formal privatisation programme. Instead, as Minxin Pei, a professor of government at Claremont McKenna College in California, writes in “China’s Crony Capitalism”, decentralising the rights of control over state property without clarifying the rights of ownership gave those who rule “maximum advantage to extract wealth from society”. Rights of control have been separated from rights of ownership in China—and where ownership is uncertain, control is key.”
